- Hi I"ve been lurking for a couple of days, catching up on some older posts. This is such a wonderful, uplifting board - just what I've been looking for!
A bit about us... My Husband and I recently adopted 11 children; 10yo, 8yo, 7yro, (2) 6yo, 5yr, (2) 1- 1/2 yo, (2) 13mo, 12mo I have 2 older children 23 yo in the AF, and a 21yo finishing his last college semester. I am so stinkin' proud of both, lol!
In addition to them, i have nannies and staff that live with us also, however they are much more than that, they are very, very special members of our family who will be with us forever. Aside from my precious ones, one of my nannies had twin babies 3 mo ago and a 6yo, one hanny is due any second with twins and they have a 11-1/2 mo, and my last nanny is due with twins this Christmas. We are truly blessed! My Hubby and I have been asked to be Godparents to 2 sets of twins so far. We are raising all the children together as one family. All 17 will truly be brothers and sisters in Christ.
I am Homeschooling all of them, so that we may raise them in our Catholic faith and can spend the year travelling. Instead of reading about people and places, they're going to experience all the world has to offer in person. My question is this... Does anyone know if I can teach them CCD classes on my own? Can I purchase workbooks or other necessary materials? We are in the middle of some major moving, so I'm not sure if I have to ask/register at ea. of the parishes where our homes are or at just one? The older 6 have had zero education, religious or otherwise so, I am really starting at the beginning. I have no doubt they will catch up quickly as they are very eager and bright.
